Mark Murphy, CFO of Qorvo, said, “Qorvo’s March quarterly guidance reflects weakness in the broader smartphone market, partially offset by content gains with the leading Korea-based smartphone manufacturer and double-digit, year-over-year growth in IDP. Looking forward, our expanding growth opportunities in IDP, sharp focus on high-value programs in Mobile Products and actions to improve our cost structure are expected to drive another year of record earnings and free cash flow in fiscal ‘20.”
